The only thing more enjoyable than actually running characters through a campaign is the promise that campaign holds. With still a few months off before our official start and with a “look” starting to come together, I needed a sound. I needed music.
I considered the three soundtracks to Pirates of the Caribbean, but then I heard the theme to Showtimes’ “The Tudors.” What struck me as odd was that, when not watching the screen, I could easily imagine a lone galleon sailing across the stars through an uncharted crystal sphere, Illithid and Neogi flyers lurking in the black, waiting for easy prey. Then I heard a captain arguing a course correction with their navigator, watched a greenhorn throw an apple overboard to see if it would really float away beyond the ship’s gravity plane, and felt the Spelljammer herself cast a shadow over a moon as a new monarch was coronated.
Yep. It’ll do.
